Asked in Physics

We've all seen movies and shows where someone jumps in front of a bullet in order to protect a loved one So for a typical handgun would it still pass through to the other person details and examples?

Some would, some wouldn't. It would be hard to give examples here. Try an internet search for "bullet ballistics" and see what you find. Some bullets penetrate a few inches, some bullets can penetrate several feet.
